Newfoundland, Canada may still be stealing the headlines –with reports that now the military has been drafted in to help with the relief efforts– but a myriad of all-time snowfall records have fallen ACROSS North America of late…
Detroit suffered its snowiest January 18 in books dating back 150 years on Saturday, with 6.8 inches (17.3 cm) accumulating at Detroit Metro Airport — a total that dwarfed the previous record for that date, the 5.2 (13.2 cm) inches that fell way back in 1892 (solar minimum of cycle 12).
Flurries continued in the region through Sunday, including in Downtown Detroit where temperatures took a further nosedive — a low of 14F (-10C) is expected in the early hours of Monday morning.
Detroit receives an average of 12.5 inches of snow in January, so it saw over half of that in just one day.
Across the state, Minnesota had officially logged over 700 vehicle crashes on Friday, Jan. 17 alone, as a severe, record-breaking snowstorm tore through the Midwestern U.S. state.
The storm catapulted the city of Brainerd’s snow total for the season to a staggering 44.3 inches (112.5 cm). To put that into context, going by data provided by NWS Duluth, the average accumulation by this point in the season is usually a mere 25 inches (63.5 inches).
Friday alone saw 7.6 inches (19.3 cm) of snow settle in Brainerd, smashing the previous Jan. 17 record of 3 inches (7.6 cm) set back in 1967 (exiting solar minimum of cycle 19).
January as a month also has a chance of entering the record books, with perhaps a top 5 finish — the 12.9 inches (32.8 cm) that has fallen in Brainerd since the beginning of the month is about double the average for this point, though it’ll have to snow-some to surpass 2019’s all-time record of almost 37 inches (94 cm).
Moving north, a clean-up is underway in Ottawa, too, after a record snowstorm buried Canada’s capital.
The 5.6 inches (14.3 cm) that fell at the Ottawa Airport on Saturday busted a record for most snowfall on January 18 in Ottawa history. The previous record was the 4 inches (10.2 cm) that settled on Jan. 18, 1978 (exiting solar minimum of weak cycle 20).
Environment Canada said the snow continued overnight and into Sunday, with the weekend’s totals standing at a whopping 21 inches (53.3 cm) by around 2 PM Sunday afternoon:
Remaining in Canada, Southern Ontario’s Kitchener-Waterloo got “dumped” with snow, according to Rob Kuhn, a severe weather meteorologist for Environment Canada.
“It represents a new daily maximum snowfall for the Kitchener-Waterloo area.” added Kuhn.
And there’s much more where ALL that came from North America, as latest GFS runs reveal:
GFS TOTAL SNOWFALL (inches) JAN 20 — FEB 05
The lower-latitudes are REFREEZING in line with historically low solar activity.
Don’t fall for bogus, warm-mongering political agendas — IPCC: “Milder winter temperatures will decrease heavy snowstorms” — the reality is proving somewhat different, isn’t it…
